Weekly Meals (June 9 - June 12)

The weekend was really busy again, so there are no Farmers' Market pictures this week... :( We had the chance to pick up some great veggies (as well as some toffee....) but there was no time to document anything... I made my Summer Salad this weekend, and we enjoyed the fresh tomatoes, cucumbers & red onions that we picked up at the Farmers' Market.

I am excited about this week's menu:

Tuesday: Pasta in Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce with Red Peppers and Artichokes - Sophia at Burp and Slurp posted this recipe a while ago, and I have wanted to try it ever since. The dish has sun dried tomatoes, Trader Joe's red pepper-artichoke tapenade as well as Greek yogurt. Sounds delicious, and I can't wait to try it.

Wednesday: Grilled Italian Sausages on multi-grain rolls. We'll have a salad on the side.

Thursday: Shrimp fried rice. I'll use brown rice and will add lots of veggies.

Friday: It's "Salad Friday." I'll make my own, healthy version of a Cobb salad with spinach, herb salad mix, tomatoes, avocados, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, grilled chicken breast and whatever else I can think of. I'll make a vinaigrette with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, lemon juice and Dijon mustard to go on the side.

Question: What is your favorite salad? What are the ingredients? Any interesting salad dressing ideas? Yup, I need some help to keep Salad Fridays interesting... :0)

Be well,
